In order to celebrate Ultima Online's 12th anniversary, EA has launched a "Return to Britannia" Campaign. As part of the campaign former players are being invited back to Ultima Online to play the game free of charge until October 16th. For those who have never played UO, a 14-day trial is also available.

The original announcement can be viewed here.

    I have an old UO account dating back to April 2000.  It's been at least 4 or 5 years since I've played it.  I'll check it out again, why not, I loved the game dearly back in the day.  But sorry, it needs a full 3-d client, now.  The isometric look was fun, but games have evolved, as have tastes.  If UO wants to stop being a tiny niche game and get more subscribers, we need a UO2/3-d client.

    God I wish they would overhaul their welcome backs and trials. In both cases you need a CC, and they usually get charged (most of the time double)  way before The Free part ends.....no other Mythic game is like this and it really turns off potential players.  My guild would have gotten five new players if not for dealing with this BS.

    I did a 14 day trial a month ago and wasn't asked for credit card info.

    Here is a title that is a shining example of needing to go to a free to play model.

    Why not DDO did and it's a huge success, DDO is the best F2P mmorpg out there at the moment and it's 3D.

    UO is what....still 2D isometric with a monthly fee???? It was a great title in it's day but let's face it EA either goes to a F2P model, develop a 21st century UO title or let it die one or the other not keep this dinosaur alive.

    EQ is almost as old as UO and it is still thriving because that title is 3D.

    I don't want to come off dogging UO don't get me wrong I simply loved this game back in the day but it is time to move on.

    I have an old UO account as well from years back. I tried to revive it but the email account it was registered with doesnt exist anymore and I cant remember the username and password for my UO account. So I cant use the Lost Username feature on the support page. But here is where it gets weird, I need the Username to log in to send an email to support to ask for the username I cant remember!

    Its like the support is designed to fail...
